On 14th May we implemented an action that we scheduled for a long time and we made it happen in the best way. The award of the AEK football player Sergio Araouho took place because the Argentin for has been thrilled us with his action to make the A letter with his hand, the letter of the name of the murdered Alkis after scoring a goal at Kleanthis Vikelidis , a few months ago, a goal that has been the best of the 21st match day. Araouho also asked to put the name of our Alkis to his prize.
From that day Arauho would come again to the city of Thessaloniki for a game with his team even though his participation because of his injury was not sure. But this great athlete has ensured the Domi that he would be here to hia awarding despite of his injure.
